Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin says elections for Israel’s next government will be held this coming September. There’s one major reason why Rivlin is interested in going to the voter soon: he hopes that the in the next Knesset he’ll get the votes to pass his new bill, seeking to level the playing field between the High Court and the Knesset. He also believes Peres will bring Pollard home.
